For an eight-game slate, it’s pretty quiet on the street tonight, but we do have some player #revenge games as well as a coach. Let’s take a look:
Marco Bellinelli (Charlotte) played just one season in Chicago during the 2012-2013 NBA campaign totaling 73 games. Tonight Marco in his reserve minutes role hosts his former Bulls team
Arron Afflalo (Sacramento) gets his former Magic team where he spent two seasons totaling 137 underwhelming for DFS purposes games
Timofey Mozgov (Los Angeles Lakers) and his ridiculous $16 million a year salary head to Denver on a road back-to-back to take on a Nuggets franchise where he spent five seasons. Timmmay is in the DNP-CD category so do not roster. Solid financial decision Lakers. Jim Buss unavailable for comment.
Mike Budenholzer (Atlanta Coach) spent 17 seasons as an assistance to Gregg Popovich spanning from 1996-2013. Popovich has been known not to upstage his former assistants in the league so the game could stay close. The Spurs have been dinged with injury to Kawhi (concussion) and LaMarcus Aldridge (heart) so the “juice squad”, the Spurs nickname for their bench, will be forced to step up again on this Monday tilt, including Patty Mills and David Lee.
Tristan Thompson (Cavaliers) — not on the slate
The Chicago Bulls are on a road back-to-back, have lost five straight and the most unlikable team in the Association. Fred Hoiberg in the home stretch of the season and still fighting for their playoff lives, has now gone to an 11-man rotation and Nikola Mirotic is getting DNP-CD’s in the process. What a mess.
The Los Angeles Lakers are on a road back-to-back and go to the altitude of Denver against the current 8th seed in the West. Good luck with all that Lake Show.
Los Angeles Clippers @ Utah Jazz — The Clips are currently the 5th seed in the West while the Jazz are 4th. Both teams are separated by just one game so both teams will be up for this one. The problem from the DFS perspective is the first two games played this season, both won by the Clippers, have been 88-75 and 88-72, respectively. That’s not going to cut fellas.
And we’re out. Let us know what we missed @nbanarratives — good luck tonight!
